Port bulges out on my abdomen

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I had my lap band (VG) done on October 3rd, 06. Immediately after the surgery I could see my port bulging out my belly. I was immediately concerned, because I don't want this bulge. Dr. Martinez said it would go down with a little time. However, I can feel it easily and it doesn't feel like it's buried very deep at all. I am wondering if anyone else out there has this, or had it. I certainly don't want to live with this extra bulge. The bulge is visible with my clothes on. Thanks. Talk with me folks. bbuck

NOT TO WORRY

MINE DID THE SAME AND YES, THE SWELLING DID GO DOWN BUT IT WASN'T THE PORT ITSELF, IT WAS SCAR TISSUE

THE PORT IS ABOUT AN INCH OR JUST OVER AN INCH, BELOW, STRIGHT DOWN, FROM THE MIDDLE, OF THE INCISION.

(I SHOULD SAY THAT THE 4 FILLS THAT I'VE NOW WATCHED AT THE OCC, ALL 4 PORTS WERE IN THE SAME PLACE)

I've actually got the opposite situation where my port site is sucked in sometimes. Looks like I have a small dent in my stomach. Figure once the incision finishes healing it will return to normal.

I was banded on Oct. 16th and I can also feel lumps by the port incision. One is to the left and doesn't feel like it is my insides or anything. The other one I noticed today and it is directly under the incision. A small rounded lump. It doesn't hurt, but worries me that it shouldn't be there.

Is this normal as well?

Hi,

I had my surgery on Sept 18th and my port is sticking out like a gold ball. It looks like a tumor. I can feel every inch of it. It also shows through my clothes. My swelling should have gone down by now so I am also concerned.

bbuck I had VG put in on 10.16.06 but no bump. I would contact OCC for consult. CalKev
